have 16 companies, most of them in the united states, most of our sales are here. but we have global footprint in some of our businesses operating 150 different countries. those businesses i think are representative of most sectors of the economy. we don't participate in real estate or energy, so take that out. but a wid wide range of food see distribution, car rentals, a variety of different businesses and we have seen a recovery of modest proportion, i care deeply about the policies that will be passed, will be championed by the president and hopefully passed by congress. and i hope they are going to take on a more constructive tone towards business and be a pro growth set of policies. i recognize it is complicated, i recognize it is partisanship and recognize people got elected but i am concerned that in the noise, in the tornado of politics and unfortunately it has become a tornado, we are going to lose what is most essential to this country, which is the ability for individuals to band together, free association, free enter price, create businesses and create jobs. >> rose: from

united states should also have learned that no policy that is based on a misunderstanding of the facts or wishful thinking is likely to succeed. and there are a whole series of assumptions built into this transition policy about the ability of the afghan national arm about the degradation of the taliban and the ability of afghan political lead yooers to fashion a fair transition of power from karzai who-to-whoever comes after. all of these assumptions look quite shaky and you don't want to ask american men and women to make the ultimate sacrifice if you're not willing to confront the facts head on and think honestly about where they may lead you. >> rose: we conclude with kathy freston, a well-known vegan, her book is called "the lean, a revolutionary and simple plan for lasting weight loss." i want to enjoy my life, celebrate food and have things i grew up loving with my family, with my friends. so for me i think the best thing that has worked-- and i think it's translated to other people-- is that if we set our intention to move toward health sand we lean into it and take steps in the d
